I don't know what we've got now, actually; the music doesn't work on the mac version. I'd be interested to hear what you've got running for the next version, though.

Talaroc: Are you sure music doesn't work? It should..., maybe you're only missing sound tracks, or have got sound disabled...

Magick: come thinking about something that suits the new woodland behaviour and something that will go into the fire temple.

Hmm...yeah, actually, it does look like I'm missing the faith.ogg file that the client says it's playing. Where could I find that, and where should I put it?

Get them from here:

and place it where your data was installed, I don't know how it work in mac, you should ask Nayr about that, anyway you should have a data/music folder somewhere

Allright, did that, got it to work.

One thing I would like to see down the road: the music is hindered somewhat by the rather poor quality of synthesization being used. This is particularly apparent whenever brass or woodwind instruments are used; they really don't sound anything like the actual instruments. Now, at some point in the near future I'm going to be acquiring some new notation software (most likely the new Finale). I could, if it was agreed upon, run the already-composed music through that, so as to employ more realistic-sounding instruments. Of course, then there's also the other option, which in my mind would be the ideal, of printing out sheet music and giving it to actual musicians to play and record. The problem with that being that it usually costs, of course, and takes additional time.

Yeah we already suggested to find musicians to play the music, but they're really hard to find, it's even harder than finding pixel artists :P

Not if we'd put together our very own GPL TMW-Band. :P

If you have the score, I can at least try to get one of our university musical groups to do the music.

And the question is...is that legal? does the use of your licence allow you to distribute your works? i guess yes, but under the GPL?
